Thanks for the tip Gambler but I think anybody that has been butt effed in this crap hole will NEVER give then another chance. That's why Darian and McIntosh need to be exposed for the bull shit your police department does everyday on I-95. I agree with "Disgusted with Darien" above. The only way to get back at the most unfriendly city on I-95 is to drive straight through, doing the speed limit. BTW - give the outlet stores the finger on the way by.
gamber, I don't think it was the speed that was the problem. I was in the middle lane with 4 to 5 cars ahead of me. The problem is they pulled me over hit with the highest speeding limit they could because I had out of state tags It cost me alot of money to clear it up. Its just dirty !!!!

You think its bad now. I was put in jail for a stop light (trap) on 17 before 95 was completed. I was skinned alive and left in a 8x8 cell with 9 other to victims. My guess is many died in the darien jail. To this day im effected, and still pray for that out of state trucker who saved my life. STILL ALIVE, SKINNED ALIVE.
you are loved

Well, my goodness.
There are shortfalls in government all across this country.
When property values fall, and the taxes don't quite cover
their voracious appetites to spend, where is the only place
they can hope to fill the gap in the budget?

The LE on the street, be they State Troopers, County Cops, City
Police, et cetera, et cetera, then become what was/is colloquially
known as "the revenuers".

Who cares if all the cars around you are speeding.
If the sign says speed limit 70, go 69.
Why is this so difficult to understand?

When I drive through McIntosh County, I am undeniably below the speed limit posted.

What folks need to understand is that with out-of-state tags, you are marked vehicle and the further away you live, the worse they are. They make it so that fighting the ticket is expensive, but just paying is better for us financially...

The police there have had a bad reputation for the past 50 years. You would think that someone in that town would want to change that, but I guess not.

Darien is a very very crooked place, more crooked than most of you imagine. It is mostly the city police department though. There was an officer who was accused of raping 3 girls and he was put under investigation for it but of course they keep it very hush hush and internal so nobody finds out. Everyone who has stood up to them has been harassed and something needs to be done. Police are supposed to protect the people but instead the citizens of McIntosh County are scared of the police who are meant to protect them and for good reason.

If you pay one of their lawyers $500, you can get the ticket reduced to 74, which will keep it from showing up on your Florida insurance. It takes a while, though, because the Darien police only send over the ticket records once a month, last week of the month. They're all in a big sack and they are sorted by hand. We finally got ours taken care of in October, just one day before our court date.

Obey the traffic laws, ensure the equipment on your vehicle works, and don't commit crimes. If you follow these simple things, you will have nothing to worry about. Its always someone else's fault with some people. Grow up and take responsibility and face the consequences of your actions. Everyone blames the police for their problems. How bout this, next time you see a police officer go up to them and tell them face to face how you feel instead of posting it on here. But that won't happen because none of you have the gumption to do that.

We were told by two lawyers who are licensed to practice law in Darien, McIntosh County, that the judge there is the worst possible judge and that all of the police officers are also not touchable. We also found out that there are not many lawyers licensed to practice law in that county or that town. Your hands are tied because you have a limited pool of talent to choose from when it comes to lawyers.

My husband's rights were violated in several very serious ways. But we were told by those lawyers licensed to practice there to give up any hope of trying to get justice. My husband was handcuffed, never read his rights, had to pay bail, had to pay to get his car out of an impound in some redneck's back yard, and there was damage to the car - a new Dodge Charger.

Yet they say he was never under arrest. WTH? Handcuffed, paid bail. They drove him to the ATM so he could hand them the cash. Then the tow truck driver did the same thing. Before he could get his car, he had to stop by the same ATM to take out more money. It cost him $400 just to get out of Darien. Then another $500 for the lawyer.

It's a money making machine that should be exposed. Other posts here make it sound like it's a kind of family corruption too. People say they are all related in some way. The judge is related to several of the lawyers and cops. I think it's a combination of a lot of inbred rednecks and good ol' boy sh#* that most of the South has outgrown. Darien, Georgia is just stuck back in the 50's. I wish we could expose them somehow. Maybe someone should send the link to this site to Diane Sawyer or one of the other big news anchors.

Hmmmmm..........interesting to think about that one.

I received a ticket yesterday for doing 94 in 70. There is no possible way, 1st of all.. I wasn't going that fast, however, unless I was clocked further back in a speed trap by another vehicle, that is the only way the guy who ticketed me knew any speed. I came up on him & he wasn't even in his car!! I hit my brakes & thought I would be ok because he was just getting back in his car, but he flew up on me like crazy!!!! I find it hard to believe that a cop that issues tickets doesn't know the dollar amount of the ticket he is writing!! Much to my disgust, shock, etc... I called the # on back of ticket to learn that I was just given a $705 ticket!!! It jumped from $215 to $705 for 1mph more... then I also ready about a "super speeder" fine that people have received 3 months later. Any knowledge of this as well? Am I safe to assume that I just have to pay my ticket & move on because there is nothing that can be done?

Depends. Can you afford the violation on your car insurance? We ended up paying about the same for a lawyer to have the charge reduced, plus the bail and impound money.

@Slem41 - the officer was likely running laser, since he was out of his car and these units are hand held. The laser can clock a vehicle over several thousand feet away, and it is vehicle specific...telling the distance, direction, and speed. I have no clue as to their fines in that county, however, I do know that most fines are handled through the courts and set by the courts/judges as well, so the officer doesn't usually know the fine amounts. I guess there is no need to tell you about the "Super Speeder Law" as it sounds like you've already discovered that, but the law states that any driver convicted of driving of 85 mph or more on any road in GA, or 75 or more on any 2 lane road, shall be fined a $200 fee, in addition to any other fines or penalties imposed by any local jurisdiction or department. Sounds a bit like double jeopardy to me, but then again, I don't recall the state asking me what I thought about that. Good luck with it...I'd try my best to beg for the courts mercy.

THERE IS SPEED TRAP IN DARIEN GA. AND BY MISTAKE I GOT CAUGHT IN IT THOUGHT I WAS IN A 7O MPH ZONE, BUT I FORGOT I THOUGHT I WAS IN THE 70MPH ZONE BUT REALLY IT WAS 60 AND AS SOON AS I REALIZED THAT TO SLOW DOWN ('GOD' AS MY WITNESS) RIGHT THEN I SEE THE COP.
I WENT TO COURT. I THOUGHT THAT THEY WOULD UNDERSTAND THAT I WAS NOT TRYING TO SPEED. I JUST FORGOT FOR A MINUTE. AFTER BEING STOPPED EARILER. BECAUSE ABOUT A MILE BACK THEY WERE WORKING ON THE ROAD AND WE HAD TO WAIT ABOUT 5 TO 10 MINUTES FOR THE TRAFFIC TO START AGAIN AND WE DID GET TO GO. I HAVE THOUGHT WE WERE IN A REGULAR ZONE. SO I SPEEDED UP TO THE REGULAR SPEED. I JUST FORGOT FOR A MINUTE.
BUT WHEN I WENT TO COURT I DIDN'T GET ONE OUNCE OF MERCY AND ON TOP OF THAT ,THIS LITTLE BEVERLY HILL BILLY COURT HAD ABOUT 40 OTHERS AND ONLY 2 PEOPLE GOT OFF. THE REST HAD TO PAY 6OO$ TO 4OO4$. I HAVE TO PAY 7OO$ AND THOSE THAT DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY, SOME DIDN'T HAVE A JOB. WAS SENT OUT SIDE TO THE P/O AND THAT COST EVEN MORE MONEY. MOST OF THESE PEOPLE ARE OUT OF WORK FOR AWHILE. THE JUDGE DID NOT CARE AT ALL HE WAS NOT JUDGING HE WAS CONDENMING..
ME MY DAUGHTER HAD TO MOVE IN WITH ME. SHE LAST HER JOB IN FEB. SHE HAS 3 LITTLE GIRLS. WE ALL LIVE IN A 2BR M/H. I WORK P-T AND MAKE 1300$ A MONTH. THEY TOLD ME NOT TO GET UPSET OR THEY WOULD PUT ME IN JAIL.
THESE PEOPLE ARE A BIG PART OF THE GREEDY PROBLEM IN THE U.S.. THEY ARE JUST OUT FOR THEMSELVES THE ENEMY. THEY DON'T CARE THAT THEY ARE TAKING FOOD OUT OF LITTLE CHILDREN MOUTHS AND CAUSING PEOPLE TO LOOSE THEIR HOMES.
WHEN THINGS ARE ALREADY BAD ENOUGH. NOW WE HAVE OUR OWN FELLOW COUNTRYMEN USING THEIR BADGES TO FURTHER RIP OFF THEIR FELLOW CITIZENS. I HAVE DONATED TO THE POLICE, STATE AND LOCAL POLICE AND I GOT 5 STICKERS ON MY WINDSHEILD FROM DONATING TO THEM. I DON'T WANT TO SAY THAT NOW I WILL STOP DONATING TO THEM TO HELP BUT NOW I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY FOR OUR FOOD OR OUR RENT. I KNOW I MADE THE MISTAKE BUT THEY ARE DOING THIS ON PURPOSE AND EVERYDAY.
I SINCE FOUND ON THE WEB THAT MCINTOSH COUNTY GA. IS ONE OF THE WORST SPEED TRAPS IN THE COUNTRY. BUT I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD HAVE TO PAY ABOUT 250$. BECAUSE THEIR WHERE NO WORKERS AROUND FOR ALEAST A MILE BEHIND ME. I JUST FEEL SO BAD. THAT THEY CAN DO THIS AND GET AWAY WITH IT.
EVEN THOUGH YOU MIGHT NOT DO ANYTHING TO HELP ME. BUT JUST MAYBE, MAYBE YOU WILL HAVE TIME TO HELP OTHERS IN THE NEXT WEEKS, MONTHS, YEARS. OTHER PEOPLE THAT THEY DO THIS TO TOO.
THANKS FOR YOUR TIME AND GIVING THE COUNTRY A RAY OF HOPE AND FOR YOU TRYING SOOOOOOOOOOOO HARD TO KEEP YOUR WORD.
Slow down then and stay out of our HIll Billy heaven:)
Problem solved!

Good luck with that. In Georgia, you must get approval from the Georgia State Assembly to sue any state entity.

Best advice? Save your money, move on and consider it a learning lesson.

And don't break any laws in small towns!
